Does anyone know what kind of mounts you need for the fiberglass bumpers?

None. I just bolts onto the body and doesn't use any other mounts.

This is by far the most weight savings as the stock bumper, mounts, ends and rubber thingies weight a ton in comparison.


Not a great picture, but the only one I had of the rear of my car. Fiberglass rear bumper.

Does anyone have a hook up on Euro bumpers? I am having an issue getting of the UK sellers to respond to me. I'm not sure if they think I am a scammer.

That rear bumper on pelican is really rough. It has some damage. Not worth it to me to fix.

Does anyone have a contact over in the UK that could hook me up with a Euro bumper? I have had 2 people on Ebay say they would sell me one. One guy wants almost $300 to ship the bumper, and the other won't respond to me how much shipping is.

Yea, some of those bumpers were pretty nasty. Porsche definitely fared the best (with one exception, mentioned below), and integrated it really well into their designs.

MAGK - which do you think is worse, 1975 Porsche 914 or late model MGB? Both are pretty bad

And the Alfa Spider - biggest loser? The original boat-tail - gorgeous car. Nineties spider - erm, beached whale? What happened? lol.

Lamborghini tried to mount a front airfoil wing on the Countach in hopes to pass it as a regulation height bumper - don't think they fooled them though.

Take care!

Do they still produce it? I can't find it on their site. GT Racing sells it too, but I've heard bad things about the quality of their products.
